Mark Steyn

Mood Indigo

I had a grand time at Indigo Books at Toronto's Manulife Centre on Wednesday night, and I thank Heather Reisman for very graciously including me in her roster of extremely distinguished authors. The joint was SRO - and from quite early on, as Eye On A Crazy Planet reports: My pal Mitch Wolfe, a writer for Canada Free Press, mentioned to me that he arrived at 4 pm for the 7 pm start. Even so, it was so crowded he was still only able to watch in a densely packed standing section at the rear of ...

Defend Free Speech!

Mannahu Akbar!

The other day I quoted this letter from Mindy Alter in The National Post: Mark Steyn reminds us of the similarities between jihadists and climate-change alarmists. Both are fanatical. Both hew to ideologies that brook no dissent or criticism. Both go ballistic — albeit in markedly different ways — when some "blasphemer" has the audacity to make withering fun of them and their orthodoxies. Most crucially, however, is the fact that both are control freaks who seek to micro-manage our lives, the ...

No-Go Contendere

Anne Hidalgo, the socialist Mayor of Paris, is threatening to sue Fox News for referring to Muslim "no-go zones" in the city - which absurd legal threat demonstrates perfectly the sincerity of the French establishment's commitment to free speech in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo massacre. On Thursday, I dropped in at Sun News to chew over that and other aspects of Europe's Islamization with Ezra Levant. Click below to watch: Some of us have been following this topic for a long time. Almost nine ...

Condition Stable, But Not in Remission

Mark had a lively crowd for his event at Indigo Books in Toronto with Heather Reisman, which he'll have more to say about later. But in the meantime here's a couple of Wednesday media appearances. First, he joined Global's Morning Show for a wide-ranging discussion with Liza Fromer, Rosey Edeh, Kris Reyes and Antony Robart - a quartet of hosts all of whom were remarkably well-informed about his book.

The [Un]documented Mark Steyn

The Dainty Little 19th-Century Imperialist Gelding

Mark is a little under the weather this weekend, and resting up before his live appearance in Toronto this Wednesday. But his excruciating pain momentarily lessened when he read this review of The [Un]documented Mark Steyn by Charles C W Jang in The Dartmouth Review:

Rush's Right-Hand Man

Kit Carson was Rush Limbaugh's Chief of Staff, so Rush dubbed him "H R" - as in H R Haldeman, who fulfilled the same role for Richard Nixon. The dramatis personae of the Nixon White House aren't quite as reflexively familiar to an unassimilated foreign guest-host such as myself, and it took me awhile to get on top of it: on one early show, I referred to him as "R F", which bemused him. "Where did that come from?" he asked. After thinking about it, I figured I must have confused H R with R F, the studio boss of "Monumental Pictures" in Singin' In The Rain.

Kit liked that. He had been an actor, dreaming of Broadway, not talk radio. But 27 years ago he accepted a job with a guy whose radio show was growing a little faster than he could handle...

The One I Love (Belongs To Somebody Else)

ImageWe're spending this weekend with the Isham Jones/Gus Kahn end of the Sinatra songbook. Following "It Had To Be You" on Friday, here's a song Frank sang for almost half-a-century from June of 1940, as the new boy vocalist with a hit orchestra, to deep into the 1980s, as a lion in winter jumpin' all over a hard-swingin' band...
